2005 Napa Valley Estate Chardonnay

by David on July 18, 2006

Abundantly fragrant with distinctive and intense fruit. Loaded with spicy pineapple, rich guava, creamy vanilla, and crisp citrus. The lingering signature finish is the mark of several months of aging sur lies. Our Chardonnay ripened slowly in the cool, Carneros fog, intensifying the fruit and lending it our signature crisp finish. Geoff fermented about 40% of the wine in barrels for fullness and complexity, and the balance at low temperatures in stainless steel for purity of fruit. By bringing the two together he created one wine that’s both opulent and lively. Bright and nicely focused.
